He's stated a passion for free information, which arises from his upbringing.
In reality he supports many individuals and causes that he sees as championing freedom of information over control of information.
Also, your suggestion we remove 'the internet' from this debate is rather silly. The internet is a major part of our lives now, so it's quite understandable that activism will take place on the internet, and thru the internet, rather than in newsprint or on tv alone.
